DIGITALLY SWEET - challenge #66

For this weeks Design Team challenge at Digitally Sweet I used a gorgeous vintage Merry Christmas image from

We had an inspiration image to work from.

And here is the image I chose from Lunagirl.

This image reminded me of a vintage postcard, and so this was what I went with. I decided to create a holiday postcard.

And this is my creation...

First, I chose to work on watercolour card so when I was stamping, it created a softer look.
I masked off a section at the top and bottom of the page and stamped a snowflake image using two different shades of pink.

I added two strips of red ribbon to the top and bottom.

I die cut the image using the whole set of Spellbinders dies to create a decoupage. I inked each section then decoupaged it using foam pads.

On the other side of the paper, I stamped a script stamp using brown ink rather than 

I cut out a old postage stamp from a book and stamped the postage stamp over the top then on the bottom of the page.
